Abstract :

The objective of the study is to investigate the effect of different arsenic concentrations on some physiological parameters of bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) seedlings, grown in sand with nutrient solution in a climatic box was treated with 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20 ppm Arsenic in the form sodium arsenate Na3 AsO4 (pH 5.5). After 3 months of As treatment, the various growth parameters as well as changes in leaf gas-exchange, water potential, chlorophyll and protein contents, peroxidase activity and lipid peroxidation in roots was recorded. Results clearly show that with increase in arsenic concentration growth activities of bean plant suppress.
